Open House Goodies
Pauline’s Handmade Brittle’s seventh-year anniversary Open House was a great success last weekend. A tasty time was had by all. Thanks to the “Hollytones” for their beautiful voices and making our event a memorable Christmas experience.
We also took this opportunity to introduce two new items. Our new “Mama Jean’s Old Fashioned Fudge” was very well received, along with the Smoked Salmon Cheese Ball (available by order). We also have all our traditional gift items, such as our best-seller “Classic Pecan Brittle,” along with some new favorites such as Pumpkin Chocolate Pecan Brittle, Espresso Bean Brittle, and our Holiday White & Dark Chocolate Peppermint Pecan Brittle.
